First off, I love these lip pencils. They feel more like a lip gloss than a lipstick (which is great!), but have more staying power than a gloss does. The colors are quite bright. I was hoping that the red was a deep wine red, like the color on the end of the pencil, but it is definitely a true red. That was a little disappointing, but it still looks beautiful!
I received one of these pencils in my birchbox a year or so ago and loved it, so I went ahead and ordered this because the colors seemed great. Of the 4, I think 2 of them are more wearable than the others (the red just isn't my color). Overall, they are easy to use, stay on and they don't dry my lips out. Great way to play with color!
great product at a great price
I love this fun and edgy lip set! It applies easily and glides on smoothly. It is definitely obvious when I am wearing a color from this set. The colors are bold and remain on my lips for a while. If I need to tone down the color for my outfit or activity, it is easy to just blot my lips on paper to reduce the intensity of color. This set has allowed me to play with and become comfortable with shades I normally wouldn't have worn.
Poor quality lip stain
I didn't sample these before buying and truly wish I had. The colors are bold, but don't go on smoothly and merely stain your lips. There's no sheen as described and they feel like a dime store purchase. Each pencil has a slight "medicinal" smell that fades away after 10 minutes or so. Last thing...cheap packaging - the pencils are taped together with a super sticky tape so when you remove it, there's an annoying residue left behind on the bottom third of each pencil.
Great Lip Color
This product is awesome! Great color choices. It goes on easy and does not dehydrate your lips like other lip colors. It smells minty fresh! I always have at least one of these in my purse.
